Hi,

OLAF email: UKIP fraud investigation ongoing, hints at wider scope

farage breakdown.png

At the turn of the year, the SKWAWKBOX revealed that UKIP was under investigation by the European Commission’s anti-fraud unit OLAF for huge alleged fraud of up to €20 millionand in relation to child pornography allegations – an investigation on a far larger scale than the already-proven charges pictured above.

This was dismissed by some at the time as ‘fake news’, but a month later some of the mainstream media ‘broke‘ news of the investigation as well.

One of the witnesses in the investigation recently contacted OLAF for an update on their investigation and received a reply that hints that the initial scope of inquiries may gave become even larger:

fober

While, rightly, carefully couched in language to protect the presumption of innocence, the email does give away some significant information and hints at potential interesting developments.

OLAF’s investigation was originally scheduled to report on 12 February this year, but the email confirms that it is still continuing. This would suggest that investigators have found a lot more relevant evidence than they were anticipating – and perhaps that UKIP are not co-operating, which fits with reports alleging that various offices were shredding documents in a panicked attempt to destroy evidence.

The investigator also mentions ‘possible ensuing investigations‘ as a reason for her refusal to give a more substantial update.

An investigation that is still ongoing a full two months after its report was due – and a hint of further investigations spinning off from it. This may suggest that the investigation into UKIP has opened up questions about the wider extreme-right network across Europe.

This would fit with reports received by this blog, but not yet substantiated, that the raid on Marine le Pen’s Front National headquarters in France was in some way connected to the UKIP investigation:

Certainly the reason given for the raid – an investigation into ‘fake jobs’ – bears a strong resemblance to the allegations against UKIP, which include claims that salaries were claimed for non-existent staff as well as for employees engaged entirely in non-qualifying work for UKIP.

A wider investigation would also fit neatly with the recent ‘disarray‘ of the right-wing, UKIP-led Alliance for Direct Democracy in Europe following the walk-out of its Executive Director, after the group was found guilty by the EU of ‘misspending’ over €500,000 – including a significant amount on Nigel Farage’s 2015 attempt to be elected as an MP.

Discussions with this blog’s sources are ongoing and the SKWAWKBOX has also contacted Ms Fober to arrange a conversation about the state of the investigation and its wider links, which may yield further useful information after the Easter break.

Let us also remember that Ukip’a new, so called, leader Paul Nuttall has actually conceded the fact that he squandered £99,000 on his failed ambition to get elected in Stoke – in the by-election for a seat at Westminster as an MP – a challenge he totally failed to achieve, largely due to his personality and a string of PR disasters which led many amongst his electorate to believe he was utterly untrustworthy, lacked leadership ability and was most probably an outright and deliberate liar.

It is also worthy of note that Ukip has no financial backer of any consequence and the £99K or at least a substantial part of ity may well also have been sourced illicitly from the public purse via the EU!

Nigel Farage Happy To Prostitute Ukip & climbs into bed with anyone including vile extremists in his sweeping of the E$U’s gutters For Cash

Hi,

let us not forget that in selecting The Man Of The Year some years ago Adolf Hitler was selected due to his influence and the changes he was bringing about in the balance of power in Germany – There is little surprise that Nigel Farage was selected by The Times when they used the same criteria, though I believe that Alex Salmond outstripped Farage during 2014 though Farage’s damage to the likelihood of Britain Leaving The EU may well prove more damaging in the long run, all be it more insidious at this stage.

Ukip rising star and right-wing fanatic who helped Nigel Farage rake in £1MILLION

Przemek Skwirczynski, who is bidding to become an MP in the general election, was photographed smiling alongside Polish far-right leader earlier this year

Far-right problems: New links revealed

A rising star of Ukip poses for a snap with a Polish far-right leader – who defended Hitler and said women are too stupid to vote.

Przemek Skwirczynski, who is bidding to become an MP in the general election, was photographed smiling alongside Janusz Korwin-Mikke earlier this year.

Korwin-Mikke is head of Poland’s Congress of the New Right party – and was crucial in helping Nigel Farage’s party gain a £1million funding jackpot from the European Parliament.

The Pole agreed to one of his MEPs, Robert Iwaszkiewicz, joining Ukip’s ­parliamentary alliance – Europe of Freedom and Direct Democracy.

His move pushed Mr Farage’s group over the threshold to achieve official status and a cash boost.

To qualify, an alliance must have 25 MEPs from seven countries. Mr Farage had 47 MEPs but needed ­Iwaskiewicz to give him a seventh nationality.

The group consists of supposedly like-minded Eurosceptics.

But Mr Farage is so keen to shore up his position in Brussels and pocket millions in funding for UKIP that he has jumped into bed with extreme right parties.

Przemek SkwirczyÀski
Meeting: Przemek SkwirczyÀski and Janusz Korwin-Mikke

He has publicly insisted he never met Korwin-Mikke and has described him as “utterly reprehensible”.

And last month the Pole bragged his new deal with Ukip would allow him to “blackmail” the Brit.

He said: “We are Eurosceptics and felt obliged to help… also now we can always blackmail him, he will have to help us.”

Previously Korwin-Mikke, 72, insisted Nazi leader Adolf Hitler probably knew nothing of the Holocaust and claimed women were “dumber than men” and should not be allowed to vote.

Yet Mr ­Skwirczynski – prospective parliamentary candidate for Tooting, South London – was happy to pose with the Polish bigot, who has also spouted vile opinions about disabled people.

Labour MP John Healey said: “It is very worrying a Ukip politician is ­associating with a group pushing such vile views – and not for the first time. Ukip deliberately courts these far-right parties to secure more cash for its coffers.

“Ukip must explain why it has chosen a candidate who keeps this unsavoury company.”

Mr Skwirczynski, a Canary Wharf banker, arrived from Poland in 1999. He is a member of his party’s Friends of Poland group.

While he was willing to pose with Korwin-Mikke, the extremist’s views are so repugnant even French National Front leader Marine Le Pen shunned an alliance with his party.

The deal between Ukip and the Polish Congress of the New Right was sealed last month.

A month earlier, the snap of ­Westminster hopeful Mr Skwirczynski with Korwin-Mikke appeared in Polish ­newspaper Dziennik Polski.

Mr Farage, who enjoys fine food and wine in restaurants like Il Pasticcio near the European Parliament, has been making equally dubious allies.

They include two MEPs from the Swedish ­Democrats, which was launched in 1988 as a white supremacist party.

Another is independent Joelle Bergeron, 65, an ex-stalwart of the French National Front who is now said to be flirting with the ultra-right Parti de la France.

Mr Farage’s bizarre alliance also includes former Lithuanian president Rolandas Paksas – the first modern ­European leader to be removed from power by ­impeachment amid concerns over his ties to organised crime.

When he formed the group in June, Mr Farage said he was proud of the way they came together despite strong opposition.

He said: “Expect us to fight the good fight to take back control of our countries.”

And the UKIP leader insisted the ­alliance was a force for good and boasted: “I am very proud to have formed this group with other MEPs and we undertake to be the people’s voice.”

Mr Skwirczynski insisted he simply had a picture taken with Korwin-Mikke, but would not comment further.

Nigel Farage: Fresh problems

 

A source close to the candidate said: “Someone took a photograph of the two of them together while they were at a meeting of politicians of Polish origin.

“David Cameron has his picture taken with Vladimir Putin but it does not mean Britain collaborates with the Russians.”

The source added: “Przemek insists he had no idea of this man’s views until he read them in British newspapers.

“He says that anyone with more than two brain cells would disagree with the views attributed to Korwin-Mikke.”

Ukip faced further ­embarrassment as Martyn Heale, chairman of the party in Thanet South, spoke of his “regret” at having been a member of the National Front in the 1970s.

Mr Farage is standing for election as an MP in the Kent constituency.

Since 2008 the party’s ­constitution has banned new members who were part of extreme right-wing groups such as the BNP, the English Defence League and National Front.

Hi,
whilst considering Nigel Farage’s & the facts of the alienation of a member, or more likely a block of members in his group it is worth being minded that when he came to the last EU Parliament with 13 Ukip MEPs he managed to alienate 8 cutting his Party political MEP Group to a rump of 5!
It is ‘taxing’ desperately trying to keep all the balls in the air without competent aids and associates who are genuinely on one’s side rather than paying lip service for their own advancement and self enrichment as with those around Nigel Farage:
FARAGE, Nigel 94 ORCHESTRATING A DEFECTION 01
Already ir seems that although he managed to pip Marine LePen to forming a Group and thus gaining control of some £17Million in additional expenses he has already started falling out with those in his Group and his own MEP Roger Helmer must also be having grave doubts in the light of how the media were tipped off to photograph him entering a ‘brothel’ for, as he put it at the time relaxation – though since the spin has been invented that he had entered to study what the women therein were doing & in what conditions as a part of his Political duties!
It is a well known practice of Nigel Farage to have his lackeys like Annabelle Fuller, Gawain Towler, Mark Croucher, Clive Page, Herman Kelly and other low lifes brief against his associates, bully them and set them up wherever they may challenge his position or absolute authority.
One wonders if The Grillards had voiced their doubts thus giving rise to such uber prompt dismantling of the group where common practice has been to allow long delays in dissolution to allow the group to make efforts to replace one or two vacant seats – the speed of dissolution may well be because the group was in far wider collapse than has been made public as it is unlikely the group would lose its status on the loss only of the Latvian MEP Iveta Grigule whose extremism featured on BBC Panorama last Monday, exposure which may just have been the unwelcome last straw for her, and to see the group dissmantled within a day! within a day!
The loss of bribes received by a Group Leader will prove of consequential damage to Nigel Farage, his income and his image as he loses his EU supplied bribes like his limo, his chauffeur, his front row seat in the EU Parliament from which to ‘showboat’ not to mention his control of some £17Million in expenses payable on the number of MEPs he had in his group.
Could this be the beginning of the end for Nigel Farage, fatally damage allbeit as ever never leaving a fingerprint on the evidence and actions himself!

British eurosceptic cobbles together EP group
Le Pen meets Ukip man

By Valentina Pop

BRUSSELS – A narrow grey hallway on the seventh floor of the European Parliament was buzzing with journalists on Thursday (16 October).

In a small office, a young assistant was barely coping with ringing phones, emails, and knocks on the door, all wanting to know when her boss, Iveta Grigule, will be back or make a press statement.

“I simply don’t know. She is not here and I doubt she’ll be back before next week,” the assistant said.

The unusual attention for the Latvian MEP was due to the fact that earlier that day, Grigule resigned from the eurosceptic Europe of Freedom and Direct Democracy (EFDD) group, which led to the break-up of the faction.

Any EP group needs to have a minimum of 25 members from at least seven different countries. The EFDD, formed mostly of members of the UK Independence Party and Italy’s Five Star Movement, had scraped together one MEP from the Czech Republic, France and Latvia, and two MEPs each from Lithuania and Sweden.

A meeting of political leaders chaired by EP president Martin Schulz on Thursday took note of the group breakup following Grigule’s resignation.

In a press statement, EFDD claimed Grigule was “blackmailed” by the leaders of the two largest groups – the centre-right European People’s Party and the Social-Democrats – in order to get the chairmanship of the EP-Kazakhstan delegation.

“Concerning her resignation, Ms Grigule told the secretary general of the EFDD group that ‘I had to do it to get elected’,” the EFDD statement reads.

The now-defunct group also complained that its members are being “systematically excluded from their expected positions in EP delegations and chairmanships under the D’Hondt system which is the normal practice over many years.”

Both the EPP and the Social-Democrats rejected the accusations.

“It is not true that the EPP pressured Grigule in any way. She approached us for support for the chairmanship of the EU-Kazakhstan delegation and we said no,” said Pedro Lopez de Pablo, spokesman of the EPP group.

His colleague from the Social-Democrats, Jan Bernas, also said there was no such “blackmail”.

“When she realised she couldn’t get the chairmanship, she quit. But there was absolutely no pressure from us or anybody else,” Bernas told this website.

A spokesman for EP chief Martin Schulz, also accused of blackmail, said that the accusations are “unfounded.” He also suggested Grigule herself wanted to leave the eurosceptic group.

“President Schulz met yesterday with MEP Iveta Grigule on a request coming from the MEP herself. MEP Grigule informed President Schulz that she intended to leave the EFDD group,” Schulz spokesman John Schranz wrote in an emailed reply.

According to EP sources, the pro-Russia stance of Ukip leader Nigel Farage may have played a role in the Latvian’s decision, whose party, the Latvian Farmers’ Union, is in government coalition talks back home.

“In Latvia, there is no left or right, there are only pro-Russia and anti-Russia parties,” an EP source quipped.

With the loss of his group, Farage, who recently said that migrants to the UK should be tested for HIV, will lose speaking time, a seat in political leaders’ meetings and millions in funding money allocated to groups. In 2013, his group received €2.6 million.

But while many pro-EU politicians openly applaud the breakup of “Farage’s group”, they also worry that this will spur once again the French far right leader, Marine Le Pen, into having another go at forming a group of her own.

Back in the summer, Le Pen failed to gather MEPs from enough countries because Farage beat her to it.

As for the 17 MEPs from Beppe Grillo’s Five Star Movement in Italy, several of them are expected to join the Greens.

A spokesperson for the Greens told this website that the group hasn’t received any formal applications yet, but that they are “open” to such moves.

“There have been lots of ongoing informal contacts since the elections and any of our MEPs have already established good working relations with the 5 Stelle members in different EP committees,” the spokesperson added.

But one sticking point remains Grillo’s clear anti-EU discourse, which contradicts the pro-EU views of the Greens.

Eurosceptic MEP group collapses

A Eurosceptic group in the European Parliament (EP) that includes Britain’s UKIP and Italy’s Five Star Movement has collapsed after an MEP withdrew.

The development means a loss of funds and less influence for the parties in the Europe of Freedom and Direct Democracy (EFDD) group.

The EFDD accused EP President Martin Schulz of engineering Latvian MEP Iveta Grigule’s exit from the group.

Speaking to BBC News, Mr Schulz’s office denied any wrongdoing.

The office said that after meeting Mr Schulz on Wednesday, Ms Grigule had brought her letter of resignation from the group to his office on Thursday morning.

Consequently, leaders of the European Parliament decided that the EFDD had to be dissolved, the office told the BBC.

To qualify as a group, parties must represent at least seven countries and Ms Grigule’s departure had reduced the EFDD to six.

‘Massive blow’

Ms Grigule, an MEP for the Latvian Farmers’ Union, has applied to Mr Schulz to become an independent MEP.

Analysis: Chris Morris, BBC News, Brussels

According to one source in the European Parliament, the EFDD group was due to get just over 4m euros (£3.2m; $5m) in funding in 2015 – more than 80,000 euros per MEP in the group.

For UKIP, with 24 MEPs, that’s more than 2m euros of revenue hanging in the balance. Half of it usually goes to the communications budget – a valuable resource in an election year.

If Mr Farage is no longer the leader of a group, he will also get less speaking time in the parliament, and fewer opportunities to make speeches on big set-piece occasions.

UKIP alleges that the Latvian MEP who has left the group was bullied into submission by parliamentary leaders but she is so far unavailable for comment.

A UKIP statement accused the President of the European Parliament, Martin Schulz, of acting like he was running the parliament of a “banana republic”. But without a formal political group, UKIP will be a less powerful voice in Brussels.

Nigel Farage said his party had been the victim of a back-room stitch-up and he accused Martin Schulz of “effectively blackmailing” Ms Grigule by offering her the leadership of an overseas delegation. That, he said, was how the British got treated in Brussels.

The EFDD’s collapse has also forced MEPs to postpone a decision on the winner of the Sakharov Prize for 2014 until next Tuesday, for administrative reasons.

UKIP’s 24 members made up half of the 48-strong EFDD group.

They were followed by Beppe Grillo’s Five Star Movement which had 17 MEPs. Other members included the Sweden Democrats, one French independent, and MEPs from the Czech Republic and Lithuania.

Eurosceptics made major advances at the European elections in May, with the EFDD gaining an extra 17 seats.

Make-up of European ParliamentThe make-up of the 2014 European Parliament before the collapse of the EFDD

News of the EFDD’s fall was welcomed by the largest group in the parliament, the centre-right European People’s Party (EPP), which tweeted: “First defeat for Eurosceptics! EFDD group disappears with departure of Latvian Iveta Grigule.”

The leader of the UK Labour Party at the European Parliament, Glenis Willmott MEP, said Nigel Farage had suffered a “massive blow”.

Mr Farage has predicted UKIP could hold the balance of power in the UK following the general election next year after his party gained its first elected MP last month and narrowly failed to take a seat from Labour at a by-election.

Why being in a group is better

  • Non-attached MEPs – collectively called “NI” in the parliament – cannot be heads or deputy heads of EP committees or delegations
  • Groups have more power than NI members to draft legislation and steer it through parliament
  • NI members cannot table group amendments or motions for resolutions at full EP sessions
  • MEPs in groups have more staff than NI members, who are excluded from the total 59.8m euro (£48m; $76m) pot allocated to groups to cover their administrative expenses
  • Average budget for NI members is 43,000 euros each.

EU BLACKMAIL: EP Prez Schulz Forces Farage’s Euro Group to Fold, Denying £Millions to UKIP

 
 
 
 

UKIP’s European Parliamentary group, the ‘Europe of Freedom and Direct Democracy’, has collapsed today as a single, Latvian member holding the group together walked out. UKIP sources believe the move was intentionally orchestrated by the socialist President of the European Parliament Martin Schulz.

Breitbart London understands that Iveta Gringule, the sole representative of the Latvian Farmers Union, resigned from the EFDD group this morning, meaning that the strict criteria for forming a political group set up by the European Parliament is not met.

Groups must have representatives from 7 different EU member states, which the EFDD no longer does. Speculation now abounds as to whether 17 MEPs from the Italian 5 Star Movement will find another group. 

The news will come as a serious blow to UKIP who have been doing well in domestic elections in the UK.

Ms Grigule, the sole Latvian MEP in the EFDD group, signed her letter of resignation in the office of the European Parliament President Mr Schulz this morning. He later told the Conference of Presidents, the committee of the Parliament’s group leaders, that the EFDD had folded.

Concerning her resignation, Ms Grigule told the secretary general of the EFDD Group that “I had to do it to get elected.”

She told the General Secretary of the EFDD Group that the EPP chairman Manfred Weber and European Parliament Martin Schulz told her she must resign from the EFDD Group in order to attain the presidency of a European Parliamentary delegation to Kazakstan – a move that some have called “blackmail” by the EP President.

UKIP leader Nigel Farage and EFDD Co-Chairman responded to the news saying: “If we are correct in our understanding about the events, President Schulz would be more suited to being the president of a parliament in a banana republic.  It would seem he has exceeded his role that should apply to a neutral chairman or president of a parliament. I believe this is an example of political bias on an extraordinary scale.”

There will now be speculation about whether UKIP MEPs will be forced to sign up with political parties it had previously wanted to avoid, such as the French Front Nationale. Sharon Ellul-Bonici, Secretary General of the European Alliance for Freedom, a pan European party which includes Marine Le Pen, said “UKIP will have to be seen with the other ‘bad fellas’ in another group with far right elements or still sit next to them as Non-Attached.”

She added that she was “not surprised” about the collapse of the group, saying that she felt Ms Grigule was not to be trusted.

“She promised us that she would take all her meetings to the board [of her party] and decide [whether to join the EAF group]. Forty five minutes later she signed for Nigel [Farage].

“I knew then that she was not to be trusted.”

As Co-Chairman of the group, UKIP leader Nigel Farage was a member of the influential ‘Conference of Presidents’ committee as well as having a front row seat in plenary next to the European Commission President Mr Juncker.

Perhaps more concerning will be the loss of the group structure which provides research and administrative staff for the group of MEPs as well as funding for political campaigns and publicity in the home countries of the MEPs. 

The funding, which runs into the millions, will mean that previously successful events and campaigning tools, such as information booklets to every household in Ireland during the referendum on the Lisbon Treaty and conferences which highlighted the work of the MEPs will now be in jeopardy.

Hi,

you will have noted that some time ago this web site blog pointed out that despite the much vocalised proclamations that Godfrey Bloom had been removed from UKIP by Nigel Farage it seemed that Nigel Farage was so inept as a leader no one was listening and Godfrey Bloom was still listed as a member of Farage’s EFD Group and there was no sign that Bloom had been removed from Farage’s cult and seemed still to be not only a member of UKIP but still listed as a UKIP MEP.

Clearly Farage hasn’t a clue what is going on in UKIP and it would seem his leadership is so inadequate that no one listens to his diktat, when it suits them to ignore him.

Just who is the leader of the cult for we all know who they worship – their only recognised spokesman!

A GUEST POSTING:

This week in the European Parliament, at a press conference hosted by Marine Le Pen, a journalist enquired as to the possibility of Godfrey Bloom joing Le Pen’s far-right grouping after the 2014 euro elections.

Frank Obermeyer of the Austrian Freedom Party responded with some interesting statements.

“Godfrey Bloom is still a member of Ukip, and still a member of the EAF. We are working well with him, but at this moment it is uncertain if he will stand for Ukip, or as an independent”.

So there we have it.

Bloom’s reported resignation from Ukip did not happen.

Bloom’s reported resignation from the EFD group in the European Parliament did not happen.

As of today, Decemer 13th, Bloom is still listed as a Ukip MEP sitting in the EFD group, as is confirmed here.

It was Le Pen’s confirmation of Bloom’s leading role in the extreme right EAF that caused much embarrassment to the party. Now Obermeyer has confirmed that the link is still there.

We predict that Bloom will stand for Ukip in 2014, and that after the elections Farage will take the party into a far right group. His only problem is how to present himself in the British press as being senior to Le Pen.

Farage Likely to be Without HIS Group!

Nigel Farage Likely to be Without HIS Group, as he loses Liga Nord from The EFD! Interestingly Paul Sykes has not commented on Farage’s Racist,, anti homosexual & Extremist links for UKIP!!

A GUEST POSTING:

 

We can reveal the state of negotiations over the proposed far-right political group in the next period of the European Parliament.

Lega Nord, the racist Italian party that shares the presidency of UKIP’s present group, the EFD, has declared that it will join with Front National, the Dutch Freedom Party, Vlaams Belang, and the particularly vile Sweden Democrats, as well as others after the 2014 Euro elections.

The sticking point is UKIP, which has been put into a corner and forced to deny taking part in any negotiations.

The Hungarian fascist party Jobbick is keen to join, but they have been put on hold until UKIP makes up his mind. A group including Jobbick would be unacceptable to UKIP, and Le Pen and Wilders would rather have UKIP anyway. Realistically they can take or leave Jobbick.

It is also the case that Farage would be unhappy playing second fiddle to Le Pen, as previously reported. However, a Murdoch/Sykes influenced victory in the Euros would give him a political boost, and redress the balance.

We all know how quickly the wind can change direction when Farage’s personal interests are concerned, and he knows that the members of his cult will accept anything he says.

UKIP & Le Pen: The links & what they mean.

A GUEST POSTING:


There was an interesting moment on Sunday when Andrew Neil asked Paul Nuttall about alleged links with Marine Le Pen, leader of the French National Front.

Nuttall stated that he had never met her.

As recently as the early part of this year reports from Brussels referred to meetings between UKIP and Front Nationale figures to discuss the formation of a political group in the European Parliament after next May’s european elections. Godfrey Bloom, of course, was co-founder of the European Alliance for Freedom, a far-right pan-European political party. The photo shows the UKIP logo side by side with the EAF one.

This is from a statement issued by Front Nationale last year:

‘Marine Le Pen joined the European Alliance for Freedom last October. This pan-European platform was founded at the end of 2010 and despite its opposition to the European Union such as it is organised at present, has been recognised by the European Parliament. The members of this Alliance have come from the ranks of those movements engaged in the patriotic and sovereignty struggles of our time. They include for example the Austrian FPÖ of Heinz-Christian Strache, the British UKIP of Nigel Farage…”

Mme. Le Pen is in the ascendency, and is probably the most prominent populist politician in Europe. Farage is said to be seething about this.

Pan-European parties will be able to contest ‘virtual’ constituencies. To be top of the candidates list in one of these parties is a guarantee of a job for life, which is what Farage craves. He knows that a seat in Westminster will never be his, and a Tory peerage is dependent on his patrons toppling Cameron and replacing him with one of their own, David Davies, most likely.

However, The EAF is now very much Le Pen’s vehicle, and she is steering it well. The will be no political space for a second far-right party. Farage has missed the boat and he probably knows it.

Hi,

it is interesting to note the facts that are being deliberately obfuscated and it seems lied about by certain areas of UKIP!


It is also worthy of note that Godfrey Bloom is still also listed as a member of the Pan EU Political Group which Marine Le Pen of the extremist French Nationalist Party Front National and Philip Claes of the even more extreme Vlams Belang of Belgium are executive VPs having been the group’s founding President – Points brought up to date in Wiki subsequent to the mythical withdrawal of the non existent ‘whip’ by UKIP!

 

Do be minded that in the EU what passes for a parliament forbids the practice of whipping party or group members.

 

Regards,

Greg_L-W.

I’m in touch with UKIP, says far-right Marine Le Pen

French far-right leader Marine Le Pen claimed to be in “regular contact” with UKIP, she told The Times after speaking at the Cambridge Union yesterday.

Mrs Le Pen, an MEP and president of the right-wing Front National party in France, denied that her party felt an affinity with the British National Party and added: “I am in regular contact with UKIP. If I felt my options were closer to the BNP I would be in contact with the BNP, but I am in contact with UKIP.”

To view the original article CLICK HERE

Nigel Farage’s claim in an attepted defence was:

“I very much doubt she has met an official from UKIP in her life.”
One has to ask oneself if Nigel Farage is deliberately telling lies or is Nigel Farage so out of touch with his party and its executive that he forgets the involvement of Marine LePen with his personally appointed UKIP MEP Godfrey Bloom, as quoted in the media and via Godfrey Bloom’s extremist pan EU group The Pan EU Alliance for Freedom
It does rather look as if yet again Nigel Farage and his party, when their extremism is exposed, merely ‘wings it’ with yet another off the cuff lie or policy invented on the spur of the moment!

It is sad that Britain’s once great hope of a EUroSceptic party has been so debased as to be rendered little more than an irritant of no meaningfull consequence  having catastrophically failed to make any meaningfull inroads in domestic politics with less than 30 elected offices out of the  some 19,500 available after 20 years and this includes their embarrassing and crass bevvy of ne’er do wells squabbling and posturing as MEPs in their vile racist, anti homosexual, anti Jewish, anti immigrant, anti Muslim extremist group The EFD, in the gutter of EU politics.
